CIID Summer School Copenhagen 2018 from CIID on Vimeo.

What is this workshop?

The Design for Behaviour & Impact workshop will follow CIID’s learning by doing philosophy and a people-centered approach to introduce students to behavioral science through the lens of interaction design. The workshop will investigate how a behavioral research and design process can help interaction designers gain a better understanding of people’s decision-making processes and create products and services with higher rates of adoption and usage.

What will you learn? Better understand how people make decisions by introducing concepts and lessons from the field of behavioral science. Practice strategies for designing products, services, and environments that address the behavioral biases of our users. Evaluate the effectiveness of our solution by measuring the influence (or lack thereof) of our designs on people’s behavior. Recognize implicit biases that we may have as individuals or teams and how they influence the decisions we make in our design process. ... [-]
